In brief: Topical cream

Commonly, one can get anal irritation & even bleeding from frequent "dry-wiping".
This condition is called pruritus ani. Your clinician might prescribe Topical lubricants or medicated creams or ointments. Apparently, your clinician did not see any evidence for other things like pinworms, lichen planus, or contact or allergic dermatitis. Hope that helps.
